I recently read a blog post by Ardyth wherein she explained that she had made her card after going through a sequence of thoughts, inspired by the theme of the challenge. That's what happened to me today!
I had been pondering what stamps I could use to make a WT474 WIND theme card. It was warm (yeah!) here today and I was wishing there was a COOL breeze coming in the windows. Since there wasn't, I thought of turning on the fan to circulate the air. Ahhhh, FAN and COOL AIR (wind) and that fan stamp I bought a while ago and have never used. I got it out and made a card. I was glancing at the TV while I made my card and saw a commercial with a COOL Graffiti wall. That reminded me of my distressed brick wall stamp, which led me back to the COOL idea and my Paper Smooch stamps. Hence, my graffiti "You're a Cool Chick" card. SO ... that's the story of my COOL cards. :D
Thanks for looking!

This is SO clever Gabby! I not only love the whole idea but love the stamp you used to show air circulating and moving! Awesome card!

I'm glad to see it's finally got warm for you over there! And I think a fan is a BRILLIANT idea for this challenge - and it works wonderfully with that crazed image, makes me think of what I think straw-blowing should look like.
